You may see us cruising by in a giant yellow duck, so, if you’re walking along the river, be sure to give us a wave and ‘quack a smile.

This February half-term we’ll be opening from Monday 14th February – Sunday 20th February and Thursday 24th February – Sunday 27th February to guarantee everyone gets the opportunity to join us on board the Duck… PS you don’t want to be the parent who didn’t take their little ones on the Duck over half-term.

    We have two different tours, both are guided by our experienced Duck Commanders commentating over all of what Windsor has to offer, and lasting 60 minutes. The Swan Splash, which tends to be more popular as you spend 70% of your time on the river, you can even catch a glimpse of the Round Tower and the famous Hawker Hurricane! Not keen on all the splashing around? No problem, we also run the Mallard Splash road and river tour to experience a different route around Windsor. Our customers have previously boasted the views of Windsor Castle, the Long Walk and the Crown Estate, this tour is 50% river and 50% road and still perfect for the kids.

    There’s lots of parking close-by the Duck Stop, we advise you to plan ahead, as you don’t want to be late for your tour. Visitors are advised to use one of the long-stay car parks in Windsor including:

  • Romney Lock and King Edward VII car parks on Datchet Road
  • Alma Road and Alexandra Gardens, next to the Coach ParkThese car parks are all less than 10 minutes’ walk to Windsor Castle and the town centre and are much cheaper than the short-stay car parks in the middle of town.
